Yesterdays post was a teeny tiny spider and todays post is a huge Dragonfly.I believe that this is the largest I have seen. There is nothing really for scale here but I estimate it's wingspan was 4" or possibly more. Those wings do look a bit beat up, possibly because of some of the windy days we have had recently, or maybe just from weat and tear over time.

Comparing to other images on the web, I am pretty confident that this is a Canada Darner.

I really like the way the blue turns to green around it's head, and it's blue green eyes. I suppose it did not feel comfortable with me and my camera inching slowly towards its, so I only managed a few shot shots before it took off, and as it flew by me I could easily hear a clacking sound of those large wings. I really thought it was pretty cool.

If you look closely, you will see some tiny bait fish flying through the air to the right of this heron as he strikes at what was likely a blue crab. The fish are in no danger, but they will react to anything that disturbs the water in their area. The Yellow-crowned Night Heron was unsuccessful on this attempt to snatch a blue crab from the waters of the bayou. Photo taken on Horsepen Bayou.
